The Lagoon Elafonissi (Nature reserve)
You can reach the Lagoon Elafonissi by car or with or as offered by us Kreta.com as organised daytrip to the south. We have many pick up points from the North-West-Coast to the Nature Reserve Elafonissi. Contact: email@example.com.
Elafonissi is a lagoon in the South West of Crete and one of the most popular nature reserves of the Island. Sand dunes with fine sand enclose a large area. Small sandy islets are reachable on foot. The sea is so shallow here that one can walk from isle to isle. Coral reefs serve as wave breakers. Fine traces of red coral leave a deposit on the waterfront and offer a fantastic light show in the water.
It is located 49 km southwards from the coastal village Kolimbari, about 1-hour drive and 1 hour 2o minutes’ drive from Chania Town. The way is the goal. On the offshore Island “Elafonissi” you will find a nature trail through the dunes.
